FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY)- West Virginia Division of Highways announces that WV 61, Deepwater Road will be closed to one lane at the intersection of WV 61 and Boonesborough Road, otherwise known as Deepwater Curve.

The roadway will be closed to one lane beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2020 and 8 a.m. Residents using Boonesborough Road and WV 61 are advised to plan their travel accordingly. WVDOH expresses their apologies for the inconvenience this may cause the citizens and guests to the area.

Motorists are asked to observe all traffic control signs and devices and use caution while traveling through the work zone once it is reopened to traffic.
